The Oregon Lions Club Sight and Hearing Foundation is working to combat preventative blindness and deafness in the community.
Many community members lacking primary care are unaware they have health conditions that threaten their sight, jobs, quality of life and potentially their lives.
The foundation is sponsoring free health screenings this summer with tests for visual acuity, hearing, blood pressure, diabetes (with a 3 hour fast) and glaucoma.
Many of the screenings have already been held in the Portland area, but there are still two upcoming opportunities in which you can participate:
Aug. 18 — Asian Health and Service Center, 3430 S.E. Powell Blvd. 11 a.m.to 4 p.m. (Vision and hearing screenings only.)
Aug. 25 — St. John’s Health Fair, Kenton Park, 8417 N Brandon Ave., 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
